    Calorie Counting
    Hi guys!

    Ive been lurking around this site for a while now and i have finally started my diet!

    Calorie counting seems to be the way forward for me, im a bit OCD when it comes to arranging things and i love to be organised and plan so it fits me perfectly, i already have my meals planned out for the week!

    Im going for eating at the lowest 1000 cals a day to around 1300, 1500 if needs be but rarely.

    Ive been meaning to get my bum in to gear for ages, im getting married in September 2012 and 2 days after New Years i got a shock and realised thats only 84 weeks away and im in terrible shape!

    I need to loose 4 stone to be a size 14, ideally i would love to loose 6 stone but i will take my goals slowly.

    The looming wedding date has proven to be excellent motivation as i was out on Saturday night with friends and resist pizza, which is my fav food and what im more impressed with i resisted ice cold Fosters which is amazing for me, i am a beer fiend and drink atleast 8 - 10 cans each weekend......

    .... I know its terrible for my health and the amount of calories in beer :O so im pleased i didnt give in and have suprised myself with my willpower so far!

    Anywho im ranting a tad now!

    Im hoping to find some support and motivation here and to keep on track and also look forward to seeing other progress :)

    Congrats! I do CC for the same reason, I am stupidly organised! But so far its worked really well for me. Good luck with your journey. How many cals are you hoping to have a day?

    Props for Red Dwarf guys too!

    Red Dwarf is my obsession.... well one of them lol

    Organised is good! I have fun when working out my plan for the week... sad... but i love it!

    Today ive had 1133 cals and the intake planned for the rest of the week is:

    Wed - 1118

    Thus - 1163

    Fri -1133

    Im also doing 60 minutes of aerobics each weekday evening and walking at weekends, i hoping this will help loads as before i use to just get in from work and plonk myself on the sofa and not move til bed time so all this new excercise will hopefully work!
